James and I both like the mint gimlet at Beaver’s. The thing costs $9 or $10 a glass, though, so we thought we’d cut out the middle man and drink some at home. I used to be a pretty good mixologist, back before anyone cared about that kind of shit, so I figured I could recreate the drink. It took me three rounds to get it right, but I finally pretty much nailed it. Then came this exchange (after the THIRD round, mind you).
Wait. Gin makes me mean, right?
No. Tequila makes you mean. Gin makes me mean.
Oh yeah. Right.
We’ll see how the night progresses. If you’re wondering why I’m drinking gin on a school night, there’s a simple explanation. I’M ON VACATION! I’m off through July 12. I refuse to use a stupid term like “staycation,” so I will just say that I’m not going to work until the 12th, and I have no particular destination during that time. Except my little brother’s wife is due to have her baby any day now. So I’ll be traveling for that. Otherwise? Who knows. Everything. Nothing. I’ll either be blogging a lot or not at all. If something interesting happens after more gin, I’ll let you know.
